Schools in the United States are seeing a tremendous increase in the cultural and ethnic diversity of the children they serve. Demographic projections have estimated that by 2020, nearly half of U.S. students will be people of color (National Association of State Boards of Education 2002). This reality, along with expanding relationships among countries around the world, increases the need for children to view themselves as members of a multicultural, global community. In this paper, the author discusses the Multicultural Cinderella Project, which can be used to provide opportunities for students to read and discuss material from different viewpoints, and to encourage the development of an open-minded attitude concerning diversity. This program can be adapted to middle school or high school levels, and can be used in conjunction with the study of Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, or National Jewish Book Month.
